14. Ford Fairlane 427
Ford wanted to beat Mopar in drag racing, so they needed a proper weapon for the Super Stock class. It had to be something that was compact and light but big enough to accommodate the large R Code 427 V8 engine. Ford found their solution in the Fairlane lineup of cars. In 1967, Ford debuted the specially-prepared 427 Fairlane.
It looked stock from the outside but hid lots of secrets. The main feature was the highly-tuned 427 V8 engine rated at 425 HP. It also came with lightweight body parts and a performance drivetrain. Although the Fairlane 427 proved to be successful on the track, Ford built only 57 of them. Today, it is a highly sought-after piece of muscle car history.
